    I knew about the Steagles, of course, but the Card-Pitts ... not so much!

    A merger of the Chicago Cardinals and the Steelers, for one year only (1944). Besides the nick name (The "Car-Pitts" ... they were
    0-10 ), the most interesting thing I learned about them is that (ex-boxer) Art Rooney came out of the owners box to join a brawl on the field that eventually had to be broken up by the police!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    I'm surprised that there wasn't as much emphasis on the history of Card-Pitt in 1944 prior to SBXLIII against the Cardinals (Whis and Grimm vs. their former employers took precendent, I suppose). You hear more about the Steagles prior to the Steelers-Eagles regular season matchup every 4 years than you heard about Card-Pitt prior to the Cardinals-Steelers Super Bowl.
